If I do a guix pull at root, than the guix system is for root updated, I understood,

does it mean that's it, and I don´t need to do a

guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm, which I do for the user?

Or should I do a guix pull basically in the root account?

As far as I understood if I do a gux pull in my user account, it has
no influence to the root account?
This is correct.  As far as Guix is concerned “root” is just another
user account.

But If I do a guix pull only in my user account, it would mean, as far
as I understand it, the root account would not get security updates?

Note that “guix pull” alone doesn’t upgrade any installed packages.  It
only gives you a new version of Guix which has access to updated packages.

What should be the procedure?
You can have all users on the machine share the same guix and/or the
same profile and upgrade just that.

On a single-user system it also makes sense to just not install any
software for the root user.
